Regenerative therapy is an innovative process that utilizes an individual's own cells to promote healing within their body. Scientists have found that regenerative therapy permits the body to heal itself using concentrated cells that can be harvested from several areas on their body, such as the bone marrow or adipose tissue. At Jansen Plastic Surgery, we offer regenerative therapy for cosmetic purposes, as well as joint pain management. Our team has seen exciting improvements to patients' complexions, as well as a stark decrease in joint pain. Beginning with a consultation to discuss your concerns and medical history, one of our experienced physicians can create a regenerative therapy treatment plan for New Orleans, LA area men and women who desire a natural solution for pain management and skin rejuvenation.
Regenerative therapy uses Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) fat cells that are obtained from one of several locations in your body, typically the abdomen, hip, or thigh. Once we have safely aspirated the cells, we will concentrate them and inject them back into your body in the desired area. The face for facial rejuvenation, the knee,hip or base of thumb for arthritic joint problems. At Jansen Plastic Surgery, we most commonly treat arthritic joints, knees, hips, as well as the facial skin for cosmetic rejuvenation. The process may take up to an hour from the time of aspiration to the injection of the SVF.
Once your procedure has been completed, a member of our team will allow you to rest for a little while before leaving our facility. Before you leave to return home, a customized aftercare plan will be given to you to help your SVF harvest site heal quickly and without incident. You may be asked to return to Jansen Plastic Surgery for follow-up appointments so that our surgeons can check on the progress of your healing. Patients should carefully follow all post-procedure instructions to ensure a seamless recovery.
"Been with Dr Jansen for four years. He was a great dr to have on my side."- R.D. / Healthgrades / Sep 19, 2019
"As a young woman wanting breast reduction I was nervous about a doctor making me feel dumb or naive for wanting this procedure, but that never happened once with Dr. Guste. He was very kind and validating of my feelings. He was never condescending when going over what to expect. This surgery was the best decision I ever made and Dr. Guste made the experience even more positive. I wish more young women had great experiences like mine with their doctors.

Frequently Asked Questions
What About Rejection?
Because the SVF cells are being harvested from your own body and returned to your body, they will not be rejected. Rejection is only seen in cases where cells are harvested from a donor. Our team will be happy to explain this to you in detail during a consultation at our New Orleans, LA facility.
How Many Treatments?
As each patient is unique, we do not ensure that any number of treatments will cure your condition. However, we can inform you that in many cases, joints loss stabilizes and skin heals in as few as one treatment with regenerative therapy. Regardless, at your consultation, one of the Jansen Plastic Surgery physicians will create a customized treatment plan that is unique to your specific needs and concerns. Your plan may include one or several treatments, depending on your condition.
How Much Does it Cost?
The only way to give you a precise price is to meet with you during a consultation. After an evaluation by one of our plastic surgeons, we can create a customized treatment plan that includes the number of injections that are recommended for your condition. After these factors have been determined, a member of our team can help you to understand the cost of your services, as well as the payment methods we accept at Jansen Plastic Surgery.
What Can I Expect?
The results of your regenerative therapy will vary according to the purpose of the treatment, the severity of the condition being treated, and the location of the treatment area. We have found that many patients have a very fast and positive response to the therapy with some patients finding full relief in as little as only one treatment.
